SPRA panorama


Chairman's Update11 November 2020

I trust you and your families are all well, and adjusting to our new way of life.

The SPRA committee has managed to meet, albeit under restrictive conditions but unfortunately, we have had to stop some of our activities and this includes the door-to-door collection of membership subscriptions.

Because of this we are asking that all members who have not already paid their subscriptions, do so by standing order or internet banking transfer.

Just send an email with your name, address and telephone number to the chairman and request either a Standing Order form or our bank details to use with an internet banking transfer.

Stay safe and well, Steve

Why SPRA exists

Sneyd Park view

Sneyd Park is part of the Stoke Bishop district of Bristol, much of it falling within the Sneyd Park Conservation Area (SPCA).

The associationís area of interest is bounded by the following highways: Rockleaze, Downleaze, Stoke Hill, Old Sneed Avenue (to the junction with Roman Way and Avon Way) and Glenavon Park, to the edge of the Portway.

The links page offers access to Bristol City Council pages on conservation areas and specifically to an SPCA document with a defining map.

Under its constitution, the associationís aims and objectives are:

To maintain the existing character of the area by aiming to represent the views of the residents in general matters of planning and environmental issues and to promote community issues of benefit to the residents of Sneyd Park.
